William Rand is a postdoctoral research fellow at Northwestern University in the Northwestern Institute on Complex Systems (NICO). His interests primarily include the methodology of agent-based modeling and evolutionary computation. Dr. Rand completed his dissertation in 2005 at the University of Michigan under John Holland and Rick Riolo on the use of genetic algorithms in dynamic environments. He has presented at conferences worldwide and has significant experience teaching hands-on agent-based modeling. He has used computer models to help understand the evolution of cooperation, suburban sprawl, traffic patterns, financial systems, land-use and land-change in urban systems, and many other phenomena.
